Child Contact, Maintenance, Custody and Arrangements
At Consilia Legal we can help with all child law matters including child contact, child maintenance, custody and child arrangements. We can help you and your former partner reach agreements and arrangements for your children. We also assist with issues as may arise with wider family members for example issues involving grandparents and/or other family members who are or have been carers of children.
The law relating to where children should live (formerly known as residence) and how often children should see the other parent (formerly known as contact) changed in April 2014. Private children matters are now dealt with under the new Child Arrangements Programme. A fundamental part of the programme is to explore whether mediation can assist you to make the important decisions in relation to you children whilst allowing you to retain control of those issues rather than handing them over to a Court.
